Coffee cup warm jam sponge

A super quick, easy and tasty little mug cake! 

I was sent some Jim Jams reduced sugar strawberry jam to try and so had a little experiment with a cake made in a coffee cup! It came out really well, so here it is!


My Recipe

Serves: 1
Syns: 5
Healthy Extra: a little milk from A


  • 1 tbsp milk (use from HEA allowance)
  • 1/2 tbsp Flora Light
  • 1 tbsp self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 heaped tbsp powdered stevia sweetener
  • 1/2 a beaten egg
  • 1 tbsp reduced sugar strawberry jam


  1. pop the milk and Flora Light into a little bowl and microwave for about 10 seconds to melt the Flora
  2. Stir in all of the other ingredients (apart from the jam) and beat with a fork to combine
  3. Place the jam at the bottom of a coffee cup (or small mug) and pour over the cake mixture
  4. Pop into the microwave on high for 1 minute. This should be long enough, but give it a quick poke to make sure it's springy and not squishy, and if it isn't quite done, give it 10 second bursts until it is.
  5. Turn out onto a plate and eat whilst warm!
